Healthier and more sustainable, low carbon cities with improved air and water, less pollution and waste, better-designed buildings and public spaces, and clean transport are most needed for the developing Asia. While the transition to low carbon development may be the most challenging phase, it also presents numerous opportunities. Developing countries in the Asia-Pacific region, whose energy systems, resources and infrastructure are based on the traditional foundation, need new technologies, new policies, new financing tools and new partnerships.

On September 22nd, 2015, a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on cooperation to promote climate technology development and deployment was signed by ADB and the Hunan Development and Reform Commission (Hunan DRC) in Changsha, Hunan, PRC. As agreed in the MOU, both sides jointly hosted the first Asia-Pacific Forum on Low Carbon Technology from October 19th to 21st, 2016 to promote international cooperation on LCT. The Forum was successfully held and has largely promoted LCT cooperation and investment.

ADB is currently implementing a Program “Low Carbon City (LCC) Pilot”, to support the PRC in the effort towards honor the ambitious commitment under the Paris Agreement of UNFCCC of peaking the GHG emission by 2030 or earlier. ADB and the Government have reached the agreement to provide loans to China’s LCC pilots during 2017-2019.


Following the success of the first Asia-Pacific Forum on LCT, ADB and Hunan Provincial People’s Government will co-host the second Asia-Pacific Forum on Low Carbon Technology on November 29th and 30th. The main purpose is to introduce the most advanced LCTs and exchange global experience and lessons learned in LCT innovation and investment, thus boosting the LCC development.

Through the main sessions, roundtable disccusions, bilateral talks, LCT exhibition and other forum activities, this Forum will cover four themes: (1) practical policies for LCT investment, (2) innovative financing instruments for LCT investment, (3) roadshow of promising and feasible LCTs, and (4) innovative partnership for LCT cooperation. The Forum will showcase global, regional, and national success stories and experiences in promoting the LCT development and investment, stimulating partnership and cooperation in this sector, and boosting both North-South and South-South transfer of LCTs.
